At the signing acknowledgement meeting, Dr Georgina Marsh, UNM’s head of the IPE programme at the School of Pharmacy said, “We are looking forward to this collaboration with NUMed, and are excited about the opportunity for the students, from multiple healthcare professionals, to work together, helping to enhance their productivity in multi-disciplinary teams as future healthcare professionals. We believe this will optimise communication between the professions, while giving the students a great chance to network and make friends from another University as well.”

“Inter-professional learning between different healthcare professionals will help set the foundation and help students understand the importance of working as a team in the healthcare setting. This collaboration with NuMed is so significant for us to build and nurture our future healthcare providers. I am glad that we have been given this wonderful opportunity to work with NuMed academics and students,” said Professor Ting.
